Sunrise Over Cove Creek Valley

Climbing a high ridge overlooking the expansive valley drained by Cove Creek, I knew the sunrise was going to be memorable, and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. This area is ten miles northeast of Lake Lure, and contains no public lands. The Sun first appeared at 7:05 over the South Mountains thirty miles to the east, and all these images were made over the next twenty-five minutes.

3,100 foot Hickory Nut Mountain to the northwest…

  1. Beautiful pictures. I especially like the top two. You could easily use them as inspiration for the colors to decorate a room, or puzzles- ha ha!
